Jsson Whitlock is embarrassingly stupid*, from Fox News:

Jovan Belcher, a starting linebacker for the Chiefs, murdered the mother of his child shortly before 8 a.m. Saturday. He hopped in his car, drove to the Kansas City Chiefs practice facility, thanked Romeo Crennel and Scott Pioli — and shot himself in the head in front of his coach and general manager around 8:10 a.m.


I would argue that your rationalizations speak to how numb we are in this society to gun violence and murder. We’ve come to accept our insanity. We’d prefer to avoid seriously reflecting upon the absurdity of the prevailing notion that the second amendment somehow enhances our liberty rather than threatens it.

How many young people have to die senselessly? How many lives have to be ruined before we realize the right to bear arms doesn’t protect us from a government equipped with stealth bombers, predator drones, tanks and nuclear weapon

On the back of the envelope and off the top of my head, we have about ten thousand murders per year.    About half our committed using guns and about half by blacks    We have northwards of three hundred million guns in the nation and what fifty million blacks.   The makes a black such as Whitlock about six times for likely to murder a person and for gun to used in a murder.    So in the name of national safety, which makes make more sense to get off the street, blacks or guns?
